We had booked a cottage and when we arrived I asked if we could have a cottage with a view. I was shown a cottage with a view but also an historic stand alone building which seemed to be in its own private garden, complete with gazebo and iron furniture. It had magnificent views over the manicured lawns and gardens to the river below.The extra $A60.00 per night still placed it well below 1/3 of the cost of some other accommodation we stayed in however it by far the best. The main entrance to the heritage suite had double doors opening to a small lounge room. From this entrance we could see the pool. A large bedroom had lighted niches, a huge 4 poster bed with crisp linen and quality bedding, additional table and chairs and flat screen TV. This room had double doors opening to a small verandah with the lovely views described above. There was then a separate dressing room with casement windows (more views) and a large separate bathroom with full size bath and separate shower. All the furniture was functional and complimentary in a heritage style. We met one of the gardeners who proudly showed us the topiary, flower and kitchen garden. There were fresh flowers in the rooms of the suite and there were lots of beautiful birds. The staff were friendly and helpful, the service impeccable, the whole complex spotless and well maintained. Good restaurant with lots of light and more views. We did not know they organise rafting trips but I watched a group returning. They looked very happy and had all the right safety equipment. The best 4,990 rupees we ever spent.
